Young Property Lawyers Forum


The Young Property Lawyers Forum (YPLF) 2018 invites junior researchers in the field of property law to submit abstracts for its 9th meeting, to take place at the University of Maastricht (The Netherlands) on 28-29 May 2018. The YPLF is an informal network of junior property law researchers, both PhD candidates and those within 5 years of having obtained their doctorate. The YPLF aims to bring property law scholars together from around the world and enable them to discuss their work with each other and with more experienced researchers. The conference provides an informal setting for young researchers to discuss innovative ideas and research in the area of property law, and to seek support in solving problems and improving their research, both in skills and in content.
